Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I keep getting the following message when I turn on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop:
PXE-E61: Media test faulire, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
Operating System not found
What can I do to sort this out?
Is it worth buying Windows XP or Vista and installing a ne operating system?
Is it a loose connection somwhere?
How expensive is this to sort out?
You got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.
Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.
You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.
